images of a dreamworld


we just got back from our mountainous anniversary trip down the east side of the Sierra Nevada.
nothing replenishes the spirit like a wild dive into pure nature.

here are some of darin's dreamy images of our trip, using various strange and exotic lenses that intimidate me :)
i wish i could make these photographs larger to show each strange and wondrous nuance.
i'll be back tomorrow with my own photos and more stories, but for now...
imagery of the dreamworld

his self-portrait:

ghosts and their cabin:

so many things run through my mind. you know how it is when you arrive home from a trip, and all the experiences are clinging to your skin, and your hair is full of them, and you still smell like woodsmoke and there are stars in your eyes. i am grateful for a wonderful marriage and our first four years together, and for our opportunities to roam the world together and for living in the golden state.

This trip itself sounds like a dream. All of these pictures are SO incredible. But most inspiring is your love for your guy. Seems like you two have a solid, pure adoration for each other that only grows stronger with time. Makes life's adventures all the richer, right? Happy anniversary!

I'm sure nothing could keep you from climbing up on logs and boulders, truly one with the forest. Glorious photos and I'm sure a glorious anniversary.

Just so magical and dreamy. I love this lens. I've tried using the same (or similar) type of lens and I go crazy with it! It's weird and strange and hard to use in my opinion haha but these are wonderful.

Sending warm well wishes your way lady
